It’s obvious to everyone, but having a high GPA is important.
For the best chance of getting into a great school, having great grades all four years of school is pretty much a prerequisite.
But getting all A’s is hard. A lot of students can’t do it. Not all students can get an A in every class.
So the key to keeping a high GPA for most students is to limit the low grades.
One low grade can really pull your GPA down. And a low grade will stand out on your school transcripts too.
You want your grades to show that you can be above average in every class. You want to show you have no weaknesses.
If you’re having a class that you don’t like and aren’t doing well in, you’re going to have to figure out how to get a decent grade in it before it’s over.
You’ll have to suck it up and get it done.
